The goal of the Office of Transportation Services is to provide safe, effective and efficient transportation to and from school. The Dover Area School District provides busing for students in Grades K-12 every school day. Bus assignments and bus stops are determined by August of each school year, and parents/guardians are notified to view their student’s information via their Skyward Family Access. School rules apply at the bus stop and during the bus ride. Parents and guardians are encouraged to reinforce appropriate bus behavior with their child. If you have any concerns about your child's bus stop or bus assignment, please contact the District at (717) 292-3671, ext. 80222. Concerns about bus or bus stop behavior should be addressed with your child's school principal. 

Please remember that kindergarten students must be accompanied by a parent at their bus stop daily. If no one is there to meet the kindergarten student, the bus driver will not allow the student to depart from the bus. The student will return to their school for parent or guardian pick-up.

Audio / Video recordings are installed on all buses.  The primary purpose for audio / video recording on our school buses is to promote safety and security for the students and drivers.  These recording devices will be used as a tool to help prevent disciplinary problems from occurring and to resolve disputes.  

No bus changes will be made during the 10 business days before and 10 business days after the first day of the school year. After that time period, change requests may be submitted for review.
